The Sampaloc-based squad delivered a breathtaking performance with a futuristic theme.

Earlier, NU coach Ghicka Bernabe told ABS-CBN Sports that the crowd will see something fresh but more exciting than their previous performances.

“Ngayon kasi ‘di na kami sumunod sa track na yun. Even the sequence of the routine is very different sa ginawa naming the previous years. Sobrang iba. Nag-start kami sa iba, magi-end kami sa ibang finale,” Bernabe added.

Aside from NU Pep Squad and UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, other teams who have competed in this year's CDC were the DLSU Animo Squad, Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion, FEU Cheering Squad, Adamson Pep Squad and UE Pep Squad.
